Meet the Team at Leslies Mazda & Kia

Since taking on the Kia franchise in Ventnor in 1990, we have moved locations a number of times. We started in Ventnor, and then moved to Somerton in 2008 and stayed there until 2011. We then moved into a purpose built showroom in Northwood, and this is where we currently reside. The Mazda franchise however has been with us for quite a while longer, and was already placed at Northwood Garage before Kia arrived. Having the two franchises work side by side has meant that our team is quite large here at Leslies Mazda & Kia, but we work very closely together.

We have a number of departments on site here. We have the usual Sales, Service and Parts, but we also have a busy Bodyshop, a large Valeting area, and a petrol station as well. Our staff members are the most important part of our business, so we wanted to show you who they are, and what they do for us. Should you need to get hold of a member of our team, just call us on 01983 293333 and ask for them by name. They will be happy to help!
